Fast to slow & slow to stop
08 July 2014
Terex Material Handling has installed two Demag overhead travelling cranes at Dril-Quip Europe’s production facility in Aberdeen.
The investment was driven by the need to handle increasingly large and heavy components, between manufacturing and assembly processes. Terex Material Handling supplied a Demag 50t SWL, 17.6m span ZKKW double girder overhead travelling crane and a 30t SWL, 17.6m span ZKKW double girder overhead travelling crane. Both cranes incorporate Demag MPW open winch wire rope lifting units, which are particularly suited to Dril-Quip’s manufacturing processes.
Safety features include fast to slow and slow to stop functions at cross travel and long travel limits, with an optical crane to crane anti-collision feature.
